In the wake of the recent hurricanes, much of Latin America’s infrastructure is in shambles. Wanting to help with Mexico’s and Puerto Rico’s recoveries, Spanish Honor Society teamed up with Spanish Club to raise funds for relief efforts. On Tuesday (10/10) and Thursday (10/12) the clubs sold quesadillas and Hispanic baked goods during lunch. Mrs. Sealock’s lucky fourth period AP Spanish 5 class took a quick break from learning to prepare the quesadillas for first and second lunches. Priced at $2 for cheese quesadillas, $2.50 for chicken quesadillas, and $1 for Hispanic baked goods, the event earned $570.55 in the course of two days. The proceeds are being split evenly between Mexico and Puerto Rico. Spanish Honor Society Officers are still searching for a reputable relief fund in Mexico to send donations to. The other half of the funds were sent to Unidos, a hurricane relief effort in Puerto Rico.
